My Hallmark store (Karen’s Hallmark, Vestavia Hills, Alabama) called yesterday to let me know that they are planning to open back up on May 1 (with social distancing protocols in place). I’m so excited!

I hope that businesses —and our nation— can return to “normal” soon.

Only if more testing is done. Too many sick people were told to stay home so they haven't been tested/counted for COVID-19.

Galloping Cat, I just heard that Alabama has not reached its peak. I'm in NO hurry to go out yet. Rather stay safe at home.

I hear that the police patrol the strip mall where my local club sponsor's store is located, looking for stores that are open that aren't supposed to be. I think they're issuing fines, and they can tell when someone is in the store taking care of things but not running the store as if it's open. Since our stay-at-home order lasts into mid-May I don't expect things to change there.

That's scary.

I would think if the manager or workers were that just organizing things or cleaning it should not be a big deal.

My store stated they would be closed through this week. I assume then it will be a week to week decision after that. However I received an email today that the owner will be hosting a Facebook Live Event today April 20 at 12:30 PM EDT. The topic will be "All About Candles".
Here is a link if anyone cares to watch: https://www.facebook.com/Goffins64/

I see at the top of their Facebook page that the store is open virtually. You call or message what you need and then an employee will bring it to your car.

That's the kind of activity the police aren't interrupting. If you turn on your Open sign or appear to be handling customer sales inside the store you'll get a visit from the police.

Debbie, there is one in Ardmore. Almost as far as Oklahoma City and same owner. At the moment, our club members are mad at him since it seems like he deliberately did things that hurt our store till it got to the point of closing it.

My Amys Hallmark says curbside pickup only! How in the world does that work if you can't see cards, gifts, wrapping paper, etc. I don't get it. seems like they could allow like 4 people in at a time, when they leave allow some more in? Gee with Mothers day coming they will lose a ton of sales for cards for mothers! (and fathers day in June)

My store is also doing curbside pickup. For Mother's Day cards they have an online form that you fill out. See the below:



Then the store will bring the card to your car. What I don't understand is what if they pick a card you don't like. For example, what if the store has eight humorous cards, but you don't find six of them to be humorous?

For gift items the store has posted a video tour showing what products are available and then you will tell the store what you want.

We were able to pick out Mother's Day cards on the HMK web site, ordered them online, indicated which HMK I wanted to pick them up at and did that. Employee came out to the car.

I was so tickled to see my Morgantown, WV store open yesterday. They allow only 10 customers in and the girls are wearing masks and they have a plexiglass shield at the registers. Heard today they will have the beautiful hanging baskets that they had last year for $15.99. They were spectactular last year. It was so great to see the girls and shop for cards that I needed to get. Best day I've had in 7 weeks.

Called my Amys and she said it is a corporate decision, not the city! she thought maybe by the 18th. So worried as know so many stores are being closed, guess they might be open for Fathers day, but right now just curbside for moms day. It is a popular store, hope they make it!

I got an email and they are still closed. The bad thing is, they are in a mall so I hope the mall opens so the store can open.
